MS Decisions

In the UK, there is a wide range of disease modifying drugs (DMDs) approved for use in the NHS for people with relapsing remitting MS (RRMS). Each drug offers a different combination of benefits and risks. MS Decisions can help you make your choice.

An excellent resource that will help many people through a difficult decision.
